Ceramic Workshop In Tuscany, Italy - 2013
Tom Radca & Brenda McMahon are proud to announce their first international saggar firing, throwing & handbuilding workshop in Tuscany, Italy in 2013 at La Meridiana School of Ceramics.
This 2-week workshop is open to all students at all levels, those who have never touched clay before and those who have worked with it for any amount of time. The only requirement is a love of clay and a desire to see Tuscany.
During the morning there are lessons & studio time and in the afternoon you have the option to take day trips to several nearby towns. Bring a spouse, friend or loved one - they can work in the studio or take cooking lessons and learn about truffle hunting.
This will be a wonderful 'creative excursion' filled with clay from the land, collaboration with your peers & the love of all things Italian.
